month what india takes in every year and still, it only grows two percentage points faster than india. in other words, if you think about the quality of chinese growth, it's not as impressive as it appears. it is massive investment, a huge number of airports, eight- lane highways, a high-speed rail that's being built and if you look at what you are getting out of it in terms of the return on investment it is not as impressive. the un just came out with a report indicating that china is going to have a demographic collapse over the next 25 years. it is going to lose 400 million people. there is no point in human history in which you have had a dominant power in the world that is also declining demographically. it simply doesn't happen. and if you want to look at what a country in demographic decline looks like, look at japan and ask yourself how powerful it is. even if china were the largest economy in the world, those numbers are all based on something called purchasing power parody, where china's gdp gets inflated because the cost of a haircut in beijing is less than the cost of one
